There’s still plenty of footwear coverage left for 2013, but today we take a look ahead at what Lakai has in store for its consumers next year.
Part of its 2014 Echelon Spring Collection, Lakai is expected to roll out three new skateboarding models–the Camby, Camby Mid, and Albany—with sophisticated style, and some equally impressive performance features to match.
The Camby is a low-top shoe that features a high quality micro dot chambray upper, and has a larger collar opening so it can double as an everyday casual shoe. It’s lined with micro suede throughout the collar and heel for superior comfort and feel. The Camby will also be available in a mid-top version, which doesn’t have the chambray design, but instead comes with a full canvas upper with synthetic leather pull-tab for that classic skate-inspired look. Rounding out the Lakai Echelon collection is the Albany shoe—perhaps the most fashion forward out of the bunch. The Albay features a high-grade canvas upper with full grain leather quarter panel and tongue. All three models are housed on a durable rubber outsole.
To promote the Spring ’14 collection, Lakai has enlisted the help of some notable names, including actor/director Spike Jonze, shoe designer Scott Johnston, and professional skateboarder Marc Johnson.
The Camby Mid and the Albany will be available starting February 15, 2014, while the Camby will make its debut a month later in March.
